Happy Christmas before I forget my fractured manners
It doesn't work for 2 reasons..
1. your svga file is fractured on the web site, you get enexpected end of file when you try to un-pack it. I've downloaded 3 times 3 different ways always with the same result. 580k seems a bit small so I don't think it all got there !!

2. the muLinux standard needs modifying to work with the svga server.

To save all the problems I've uploaded SVGA.tgz and a short README.svga to the misc section on my website. Follow the destructions and it updates muLinux to SVGA with no effort. I've used this since version 5r7 so it's well tried and tested !!
